NOURISHING DOUGHNUTS !!

Get out!! ....
Doughnuts that are actually GOOD for you??
Can it be?
You bet!
 
These baked babies are full of antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, protein and fiber.
 
 
Gather these ingredients...
* 3/4 cup of oat flour
* 1/4 cup of chia seeds
* 1/4 cup of hemp seeds
* 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
* 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
* 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
* 1/4 to 1/3 cup of pure maple syrup...depending on your sweetness preference :)
* 1/3 cup of nut milk (I used cashew milk.)
* 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
 
Score yourself a doughnut baking pan...if you can :)
I bought a Wilton doughnut pan at Meijer.
You can always use a muffin pan instead...
but they look mighty cute doughnut-style!
 
 
Here are the directions...
1.  Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
2.  Lightly grease your doughnut pan with coconut oil.
3.  In a medium bowl, combine your oat flour, seeds, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
4.  Add in the nut milk, maple syrup, vanilla...and stir until combined. 
Do not be concerned if the batter is somewhat runny.
5.  Fill the doughnut pan with the batter...filling each cavity to the top. 
(I transferred the batter into a measuring cup for easy pouring.)
6.  Bake the doughnuts for 22 to 26 minutes...until they are firm
and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
(Mine took 21 minutes.)
7.  Cool the doughnuts in the pan for 10 minutes...
and then invert the pan onto a cooling rack.
 
Finishing Touches
*a drizzle of honey
*a spread of nut butter
*a dip in chocolate hazelnut spread
*a dollop of jam
But honestly...they are great on their own :)
